ZoomBoard for Windows Mobile Pocket Pc
VITO Technology has released the new ZoomBoard version 2.0, an onscreen keyboard with zoomed preview for comfortable and accurate finger typing on Windows Mobile Pocket PC devices.

ZoomBoard has two new zoom modes in addition to the previous lens appearing above the keyboard. This new version also features a very convenient SmartZoom option and gestures support.

The software allows for quick and accurate typing and offers three different types of zooming: full zoom, lens zoom, float zoom. Lens zoom appears above the keyboard, Float zoom appears straight above the letter you press and the full one zooms in the whole keyboard with letters.

Another new useful feature is SmartZoom. When enabling this option it is possible to zoom the pressed letters either immediately or with a delay. If you need a zoom window to emerge right away then you need at first stroke wait for the zoom to appear. After that the zoom will come forward as quickly as you touch the screen. When you do not touch the screen with keyboard for at least three seconds the zoom is going to appear with the delay again.

An important upgrade to ZoomBoard is the significant increase of layouts. Alongside with the layouts that were available in the previous version (English, Russian, German and some others) there have appeared 32 layouts for other languages.
